Customer Question
I have an 02...

I have an 02 Malibu. The 10 amp BCM fuse keeps blowing after the AC is turned on. It's causing the temp and fuel guage to stop working. I have replaced the fuse numerous times. I have searched for broke wires.

Mechanic's Assistant: Most vehicles have two fuse panels. Have you located both?

Yes I have.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Malibu yourself? What have you tried so far?

So far I've found the fuse that keeps blowing out. I've pulled the dash apart to see if there is anything unplugged or broke. Everything seems fine. The ac keeps blowing that fuse.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

That's all I have.

Good afternoon,

Has any work been performed on the AC recently or is it all original?

The only thing that's been done to it is added pencil lead from the previous owner to get a better connection on the circuit board.

If you try disconnecting the connector at the AC clutch does the fuse still blow?

Do you have a multimeter?
